Happy Mother’s Day

I want to take a moment to honour these super mothers who impact my life on daily basis. I am grateful for them as mothers and the importance they have in my life. You all have been the inspiration of beauty, courage, love and some of the most powerful aspects of GOD’s creation. I am blessed that you are integral to my life and the lives of all the children you are mothers to. Ladies you are all amazing and I pray today and everyday will be blessed.

Mummy, Jamarah, Kerie, and Debi, I honour you all today. I love you so much.

The Prime Minister was also scheduled to be received by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. The meeting – a private audience with Her Majesty – is specifically organized for Heads of Government who have taken office since the last CHOGM in 2015.

Bilateral discussions are also scheduled with His Royal Highness Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.

In addition to his participation at the Commonwealth Summit, Prime Minister Holness was scheduled to deliver an address at a joint forum on the theme: “Toward a Common Future.” The panel includes Prime Minister May and Bill Gates, Principal Founder of the Microsoft Corporation.

The Prime Minister is also scheduled for bilateral discussions with the Honourable Pravind Jugnauth, Prime Minister of Mauritius, Minister of Home Affairs, External Communications and National Development Unit, Minister of Finance and Economic Development.

As part of his focus on economic growth and job creation in Jamaica, Prime Minister Holness was scheduled to hold key meetings with current and prospective investors in the business, banking and professional industries.

SHAGGY, STING & DARIUS RUCKER TO EACH PERFORM AT SUPER BOWL LII PREGAME FESTIVITIES.

STING AND SHAGGY

SHAGGY, STING and DARIUS RUCKER will be the featured performers in the Super Bowl LII pregame festivities in Minneapolis, MN on Sunday, Feb. 4, the NFL announced today. The performances will take place at the NFL Tailgate Party and portions will be televised on the NBC Super Bowl LII Pregame Show.

Sting will be joined on stage by Shaggy for the broadcast debut of their new, Caribbean-flavored single, “Don’t Make Me Wait,” now available on all digital platforms. Also, as recently announced, Sting and Shaggy will release a new, collaborative island-influenced album, entitled 44/876, on April 20th that reflects their mutual love of Jamaica – its music, the spirit of its people and vibrancy of its culture.

 

During his celebrated career as a musician, singer-songwriter and actor, Sting has received 16 Grammy Awards, an Emmy, four Oscar nominations and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  He was the principal songwriter, lead singer and bassist for the new wave rock band, the Police, from 1977 to 1986 before becoming a solo artist in 1985. Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist.

 

Multi Grammy award winning artist Shaggy is best known for his hit singles “Boombastic,” “It Wasn’t Me” & “Angel.” The Jamaican-born reggae fusion singer has released numerous albums including the Grammy winning, Platinum-selling “Boombastic” (1995) & the Diamond-selling “Hot Shot” (2000). Shaggy is also a social activist and philanthropist.

This will mark Sting’s third appearance at the Super Bowl.  He performed in the pregame show at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 in Tampa, and two years later in San Diego, he teamed with Shania Twain and No Doubt in the Super Bowl XXXVII Halftime Show.

 

Like Sting, Darius Rucker also went his own way, breaking away from the Grammy award-winning group, Hootie & the Blowfish, to embark on a solo career as a country artist.  Since turning to country, Rucker has released four consecutive albums to top the Billboard Country albums chart.  In 2014, he won his third career Grammy award for Best Solo Country Performance for his 4-time Platinum selling cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel” from his album, True Believers.

 

Rucker’s latest album, his fifth, When Was The Last Time, for Capitol Nashville features two hit singles—“If I Told You” and “For The First Time”.  “If I Told You” has become Rucker’s eighth No. 1 hit on country radio.

 

The NFL previously announced that JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show.  PINK will sing the National Anthem and LESLIE ODOM, JR. will perform “America the Beautiful”.  ALEXANDRIA WAILES will sign both songs. The pregame and halftime shows are an NFL NETWORK PRODUCTION and will be executive produced by RICKY KIRSHNER.

SPORTS LEGEND USAIN BOLT STANDS BEFORE STATUE IN KINGSTON, JAMAICA

The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, had said that “rain or shine, we will be unveiling the Usain Bolt statue” on Sunday, December 3. Without the rain the unveiling did occur on time

The Minister made the declaration on Wednesday after visiting the site on Statue Road in Independence Park where the sculpture will be mounted.

Usain Bolt & Statue

The Minister went to the Independence Park complex (which houses the National Stadium) to observe work on the pedestal on which the bronze statue — to the scale of one and quarter life size — will be mounted. Minister Grange said: “The base is now ready for mounting of the statue. The statue will be mounted and will be in place for Sunday, December 3.”

The statue — a lasting tribute to the world’s greatest sprinter — was due to be unveiled during Heritage Week in October, but the unveiling ceremony was postponed because of rain. Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Andrew Holness, unveiled the statue in a special ceremony scheduled at 5:30 on Sunday afternoon.

The ceremony was be attended by several notable figures in local and international sports.

Statue of Usain Bolt

The sculpture was designed by renowned Jamaican sculptor Basil Watson. It is the first of four statues of national sports stars that were commissioned by the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport under the Jamaica 55 Legacy Programme. Watson is also working on sculptures of Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce, Veronica Campbell Brown and Asafa Powell. The Minister invited the public to attend the unveiling ceremony.

Immediately following the unveiling of the statue, there was a special Reception of Appreciation for Jamaican athletes (a private event). Minister Grange said the Reception was for members of the Jamaican team that participated at the IAAF World Championship in London earlier this year as well as for “our Olympians in general – just to say thank you for how they’ve represented Jamaica over the years and for being good ambassadors.”
